Thank you for your interest in visiting the orchard!
We hope that students who visit the orchard have a positive, fun, and interesting experience. We want each visitor to come away with an increased appreciation for fresh apples, and for what is involved in the process of growing and harvesting them.
What we can provide:
We meet with the group initially, do introductions, orient students to our simple orchard rules and behavior in this setting. Students are invited to see the apple sorter and cider press. Bags are marked with student names, picking practices are reviewed, followed by time spent picking apples in the orchard. Each child is allowed to sample an apple while out there picking. Depending on the time of day, and supply, we can offer the students a taste of the fresh pressed cider. Usually the complete visit takes no more than an hour.
What we need from the school leaders:
In order to provide adequate supervision, we request that you provide one adult for every four children who come to the orchard.
We are providing a short instructional video about how to pick apples below. We suggest that you view this with your students before coming.
The price for school groups:
We provide each student with a quarter peck bag that can be filled with pick-your-own apples, for $5.00 per bag. We ask that the school pay in full when the visit takes place. We accept debit/credit cards, checks or cash.
In the case of rain, or a change in plans, please contact us as soon as possible.
Thank you for your interest in the orchard,
Emily and Brien Davis
